Forum: movies Subject: trouble downloading "Long Distance" - settled for OGG version??

Can someone help me on this. I am having trouble downloading the mpeg2 version of the cool film "Long distance" - I get the qt logo with a circle in it. I have qt pro and it won't let me download it - I had to settle for the .ogg video version which is significantly smaller.

Are you running a Mac or a PC? For a PC, right-click the mpeg2 link and save the file to your computer. On a Mac, hold Control and click the link, then save the same.

Hey - thanks for responding - I'm on Windows 7 Pro 64bit - I can do this (right click and download/save to my computer) with the smaller files but not with the mpeg2 - just wondered if there's something I'm missing. I get the little spinning circle on my computer and then the screen shows a faint qt image with a question mark in the middle and won't let me download. Just wondered if there's a workaround here...

To confirm, this is the movie you're trying to play?

Try VLC or mplayer instead. Both are free and support nearly any format you throw at it.
